Just reading the return of the last gang book and it references a tv show called "That was then this is now" which Mick is quoted from a lot does anyone know if this is avaible anywhere? Also there is mention of a London SS rehearsal tape that got bootlegged is this true? Why hasnt it ever surfaced again, or have i missed it?

It's been mentioned that when Generation X had their first album remastered couple of years back Tony James had his copy of the London SS tape remastered at the same time. Not that there's any intention to release it but at least it exists and has been preserved.

Whoa! Surely if they went to the effort of remastering it there was at least an inclination to release it at some point? Perhaps Mick wasn't up for it...would love to see Jones 001 set come to fruition.

Me too. But the purpose of getting it remastered at that point was so it could be paid for on the record companies money. 😉

Of course, that makes sense.
